Jamshedpur FC vs FC Goa: Build-up

The second half of the season kicks off with Jamshedpur FC desperately seeking points against FC Goa in the Indian Super League (ISL) at the JRD Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur on Thursday. Last season’s league champions have now fallen to seven defeats in a row and are in 11th place with only four points on the board. With ten games to go, Jamshedpur FC will need a quick turnaround to be in contention for the playoffs.

Their opponents, FC Goa, currently occupy the last of the playoff spots but are 14 points clear. In the reverse fixture earlier this season, they had beaten Jamshedpur FC 3-0.

Last week, Jamshedpur FC suffered a narrow defeat against Bengaluru FC. The Red Miners have now suffered a 1-0 defeat in all of their last three games. The goals have dried up and head coach Aidy Boothroyd will continue looking for contributions from his attackers.

After their last match, Boothroyd mentioned that the club was striving hard to get Rafael Crivellaro back to full fitness. The new signing has started two games but has been on the pitch for less than an hour in both games. The Brazilian is likely to start against FC Goa. 

FC Goa have started gaining momentum and are set to kick off the second half of the season on a positive note. The Gaurs have won six of the ten games played so far. However, they have only won two out of their last five away games this season.
